Blame laziness, the lack of a car, or C0-Vid, I haven't made it to the grocery store in a while. This, I hope, explains why I just ate a mayo-horseradish and bread sandwich.

Through the years, the only time we had horseradish, it came with prime rib. This was a yearly event at best. I enjoy horseradish in modest to minute quantities. My son, however, keeps horseradish on hand because he likes it. I swear, I bit into that sandwich and not only tasted the horseradish, but the (non-existent) prime rib, too! Dang, there are times a great imagination comes in handy! What a cheap date I could be! Oh, just give her some bread and horseradish, she'll be good!

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else out there had imaginative taste buds. Barring that, how do you feel about horseradish?

I like horseradish. I used to read the Toronto Sunday paper front to back when I lived in Ontario.

I read that horseradish was good with eggs so I tried it. Now I have it with fried eggs. It's great with with beef for sure.

When I lived in Calgary I moved to a new place & being a plant guy I noticed a different looking one growing in the middle of the back alley.I asked the neighbour guy & he said it was horseradish. I dug some up & planted it in the backyard. I dug some up the next year & made some of my own. Really hot! Best to grate it outside!

A good fried of mine couldn't believe I liked it! He was raised on a farm & his bedroom was above the kitchen with a heat grate to let the heat up. He was sleeping in & woke up wheezing with a terrible coughing fit. His parents were making it down below. He had to run outside to get some air! He hates horseradish!

He said the neighbours called from the next farm over & knew they were making some!

Here's a seafood-tasting fake sauce mix:

2 tbsp each ketchup & sour cream
1 tsp each white vinegar & Worcestershire
1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
6-10 drops Tabasco
> Mix well, salt to taste.

I've got horse radish outside my back fence in the alley. If I wanted any, I'd have to leave a Sticky-Note on a kitchen cupboard door.

Must advertise for people to come dig their own.

Gorgonzola cheese and horse radish broiled on top of a steak is an old favorite of mine.

Got to have horseradish sauce with your Sunday lunch - Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings, it’s not the same without it.

I remember as a kid, sat round the table one Sunday and my dad asked ‘pass the horseradish’ as my sister picked up the bowl to pass it to him, my brother tipped her head forwards so her nose got stuck in the horseradish sauce. Man, was that funny - cruel but very funny to a 12 year old. My brother really got it from my dad, whilst my poor sister spent the rest of the day looking life Rudolph the reindeer who had just been maced.

On taste memories, I bought myself and my son an old 1980s British army water bottle for each of us. Water never tasted as good as it did from one of those bottles, I’m sure it’s from early days of training where you were pushed so hard that every mouthful was pure relief - it still honestly takes me back every time I drink from it.

Dave loved horseradish, the hotter, spicier the better. He'd put it on just about anything. Me? I can't stand the stuff. Don't like the taste at all. I will tolerate it when it's in a ketchup type cocktail sauce for shrimp, but that's about it. Nowadays it has no place in my kitchen.

Probably using those new fangled hot dogs without nitrates.

I don't like horseradish, especially in a Bloody Mary. But I love Wasabi, which is usually faked by using horseradish. Go figure.

It’s taste by association. Your brain has been trained to associate the taste of horseradish to the taste of stake.

I have a horseradish "patch" outside my back fence in the alley.
Bring a shovel, a fork and a pair of gloves. Dig what you need.
Once a year, the same people come back to help themselves.
Granny Smith apples taste like white wine to me.
